- Oil Changes
The next best thing to do is to keep your oil changed because dirty oil can ruin your engine. It used to be that you would need to change your oil every 2000 or 3000 miles, but that isn't the case anymore. Using a pure synthetic oil can dramatically boost the time between oil changes to 10,000 miles, and in some cases, even longer.
Changing your oil is one the best things that you can do to keep your engine running fresh, it is inexpensive, and if you have do it yourself experience, you'll be able to change your own oil, and filter, in the comfort of your own driveway.
Another easy maintenance routine is to keep the tires inflated properly, rotated and have them balanced once per year.
Under inflated tires not only causes your engine to work a little harder as it motors down the road, but it also gives you inferior gas mileage. If your tires are properly inflated, you'll gain up to 3 miles per gallon than if you drive on underinflated tires. And with the cost of gas now-a-days, 3 miles per gallon adds up to a couple of full tanks at the end of the year.
Worse than that, unbalanced tires can cause all sorts of suspension issues. Ball joints, tie rods and even CV joints can be adversely effected by unbalanced tires. So, once per year, get your tires rotated and balanced, have the tire pressure checked, and you'll be good to go.
If you blow a hose or your radiator gets gunked up with sludge, your car will overheat and you'll be stranded on the road. Not only that, overheating will cause too much heat and pressure in the system, and that could lead to head gasket leakage, damaged piston rings and even main bearings that could seize up. Those are all car killers first and foremost.
Stay on top of your cooling system needs. Most experts recommend changing out your radiator and heating hoses every 4 to 5 years. When doing that, get a professional cooling system flush as well. This is preventative maintenance at its best, it will ensure that your cooling system will always stay in top notch condition, and you'll never have to worry about blowing a hose when you are on the road.
